TrueDelta Reviews the Seat Room and Comfort of the 2015 Mazda Mazda3

2015 Mazda Mazda3 Seat Room and Comfort: Cons
YearComment
The Mazda3 also isn't a clear choice if a roomy rear seat is a top priority. Sitting behind my 5-9 self, I had little room to spare. The rear seat in the Ford Focus is at least as tight, but has a more comfortably positioned cushion. A Honda Civic, Nissan Sentra, or Toyota Corolla has far more rear seat room. If you like how the Mazda3 looks and drives, but need more rear seat legroom, the Mazda6 offers another three inches for another $2,100 to $3,700 (depending on trim level). see full Mazda Mazda3 review

TrueDelta Reviews the Powertrain of the 2015 Mazda Mazda3

2015 Mazda Mazda3 Powertrain: Pros
YearComment
2014 If you're looking for the quickest car in this segment, you're going to want something with a turbocharger. A MazdaSpeed3 will arrive in a few years to take on the Ford Focus ST, Subaru WRX, and Volkswagen GTI. Among compact cars aimed at a broad audience, though, the Mazda3 s is perhaps the quickest. The 184-horsepower 2.5-liter engine can get the car's 3,002 lbs. from a rest to 60 mph in about 7.5 seconds. The Ford Focus, with a peakier 160-horsepower engine to motivate a similar curb weight, is only slightly quicker than the 155-horsepower Mazda3 i. Reviewers typically wish for more power from both. The 3,348-pound, 184-horsepower Dodge Dart GT and 3,122-pound, 201-horsepower Kia Forte SX come closer to the big-engined Mazda. This said, the Mazda3 doesn't feel as quick as it is, likely because the engine is smooth (if satisfyingly snarly high in its range) and builds power very linearly. Compared to the similarly powerful 2.4-liter in the Dodge Dart GT, there's more torque (185 vs. 171 lb-ft) at a lower peak (3,250 vs. 4,800 rpm). Later the Mazda3 s will also be available with a six-speed manual (already standard with the base engine). This combination won't be as quick, if the Mazda6 is any guide, but it should be even more engaging. The latest Mazda shifters have an excellent mechanical feel. You feel like you're operating a well-engineered piece of machinery. With other manual shifters you all too often feel like you're pushing cables through a tube, which is essentially what you are doing. Currently the larger four is only offered with a manually-shiftable six-speed automatic. Compared to other automatics, though, the Mazda's is about as good as they get, with intelligent logic (you'll rarely feel a need for the paddles), quick responses (with an upcoming caveat), and smooth shifts. At lower speeds a conventional torque converter buffers the engine and transmission, but otherwise this task is managed by a multi-plate clutch, improving efficiency and lending the transmission the crisper character of an automated manual. And that caveat? Well, in normal mode the powertrain doesn't feel all that quick to respond to the throttle. This is because it has been tuned to achieve those excellent EPA ratings. Fix this by hitting a sport button just ahead of the shifter. The downside: in sport mode the transmission doesn't shift into as high a gear around town, so using it all the time will harm mpg. see full Mazda Mazda3 review
